Olive Grove Country Lodge and Restaurant, situated on a small farm is only 60 min from Johannesburg. The venue has excellent security, e-mail and internet facilities, DStv, tea/coffee making facilities, laundry on request and special meals on request. We also offer conference venues and feel that this is a venue for all types of events, even those that need designing from scratch. Located south east of Suikerbosrand Nature Reserve, just off the R23 that leaves the N3 north of Heidelberg and heads into the province of Mpumalanga, Balfour nestles in a region given over mostly to farms, game farms and bushveld. Balfour is a small coal mining and maize farming town originally called McHattiesburg after the man who founded it, Frederick McHattie. This was later changed and named for the British Prime Minister of the time, Arthur Balfour, after he gave a speech on the town’s train station platform in 1905. Balfour lies in what is known as Cosmos country, the south western area of Mpumalanga that is at the centre of the country’s coal mining. It is called Cosmos Country because it is this area that annually explodes with varying pink and white cosmos flowers during autumn, a breathtaking sight for any visitor.
It is also Big 5 country, and the grasslands, vleis and low lying hills provide not only the perfect space for cattle farming but also for various game farms. This makes a game spotting holiday close to home more than possible for Gautengers and fleeting visits to Johannesburg, ensuring that one gets a taste of the Bush without having to travel all the way to the Kruger National Park.

Generally accepted to be the safari capital of South Africa, Mpumalanga is best known for the Kruger National Park and the many private game reserves on its border that offer a usually somewhat more exclusive – and far more expensive – alternative to staying in the park. The whole province has a colourful history, particularly
